How Teresa Lost 250 Pounds and Broke Her Sugar Addiction!

Press play above to listen to this episode.

Today's show is straight from your questions. I often get asked, "what if I have a lot of weight to lose, what if I need to lose 20, 50, 100, or 200 pounds?"

And, here’s another one, "how do I break my sugar addiction?"

If these questions are on your heart, today’s show has your answer.

Before I dive in though,  I want to share something that means more to me than you will ever know, listen to this 5 star review for the Strong. Confident. His. Podcast.

I found Kim by accident but really by Divine intervention. I am a 59 year woman who for most of my life has been caught up in the world’s vision of beauty and health…body idolatry not seeing myself as a perfectly designed child of my Father, Abba. My self worth was not based on the living word of God but the media. Since listening to Kim’s podcast everyday on my drive from work, I my desire for perfection is shifting from self to being the best I can be in Jesus to fulfill His purpose and will in my life. No matter one’s age, health and fitness should be a priority but for the right reasons not society. Thru her podcasts and but grace of God I am even starting to embrace this aging process which I have fought most of my life. God truly is working through Kim to get this message out to women. Blessings and peace to you, Lynne

Maybe you feel like losing weight or breaking your sugar addiction is hopeless, but friend it’s not. Make sure to listen to this episode and keep these scriptures in your heart:

Do you need to know God is with you?

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. – Psalm 32:8

 Do you need to know, it is possible?

Jesus replied, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” – Luke 18:27

Do you need to remember that the power of Christ rests upon your weaknesses?

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. – 2 Corinthians 12:9
